The best time together with the wise is sometimes when you are freestyling,or trying out thoughts developed in ones mind. Today I forced myself to sit down and do just that, have had some trouble to find the mojo for tying and thought that this could get me back, and yes it feels like it worked. A while ago I read an article about the Adams in "Fly and tie", an article written by my friend Ulf Börjesson. You could really smell how much he loves the fly Adams, as I also love the pattern, Reading the article got me thinking that maybe I would whip up some Freestyling Adams for my friend, just for fun offcourse.
My thoughts the last few Days was to make a different Adams, there are The Parachute Adams, Irresitible Adams etc.. hrm.. I have never seen a Quill Adams, well folks here it is..

I Think that it turned out pretty nice, in fact I think it´s awesome :-)

Hook:    #14 Partridge SLD
Thread:  Textreme 8/0 "Black"
Body:     Polish Quills "Natural" sealed with Deer Creek Diamond Fine Resin
Hackle:  Coachman Brown/Grizzly
Wings:   Hen cape tips

Bracken Clock

Finally I found some time to hit the vise tonight, I got my promotion hooks from Partridge last week and I have wanted to get my sticky ones on the hooks for several days now. Unfortunatly I had to use the nice weather this weekend to sort out some stuff on our house, you know some of those "will do later" kind of things.
A fly that have caught my attention this year is a older North Country fly, The Bracken Clock. I got introduced to it by a friend on facebook, Bengt Andersson, he and his friend have caught loads of fish on it, so offcourse  I had to try it out. From pictures I have seen I thought that the fly had a solid peacock body, but a couple of weeks ago I saw a Picture in an old Veniard book and the body on that one was made by a red thread and peacock herl. So I had to try one of those on the Partridge Spider Hook, I used size 16 as I Think that size will be great to try on the Grayling in Gysinge later this fall.

Well I am still slightly confused by the background of the fly, I will get back to the blog to tell you all if it worked or not and hopefully with som more info about the fly. If anyone of you guys have some info, please let me know.
